Finished. Let Summer Begin!

Performing and Visual Arts Camp is Done!!

We had a great time and had 53 enrolled kids. Crazy good.

Everyone worked hard and we had the performance tonight for the parents and everyone did great.

In the picture below you can see the murals the kids painted. The full size sheets and coloring style drawings were absolutely the way to go! The painting was done quickly and easily with the Crayola Washable paint and since they painted in the heat, dried almost immediately.  I love the fact that the colors aren't consistent and the painting is obviously kid done.  Sure, I could have painted them, and they would have looked much more realistic and all that, but giving every kid at camp an opportunity to work of the murals was well worth the effort!

Maddie was a narrator for the Paul Bunyan show.  As expected, she did a great job. 

Lexi was Cowhand 2. She had 2 lines and was thrilled! 
Did you notice all of the brown vests.  That was a hit!  Every camper wore the vest that he/she made and decorated.  I don't think it will matter what show we do next year, it will include a vest :)

And there you have it.  I may post about the badges soon. Those were great too. Oh and the sweet boys and their prized memory books. That was worth the effort too.  Oh, and the puppets. Adorable. Every camper made one of those too.

Yes, I think we hit a grand slam with this camp!

We are already planning for next year... thinking of adding a photography section for the older kids....
